Placencia Sidewalk Art Festival

Placencia Sidewalk Art Festival

Immerse yourself in Belize’s diverse art scene in February, for Placencia’s annual Sidewalk Art Festival. What better way to revel in the month of love than showing love for Belize’s multi-talented artisans? Hosted by the Belize Tourism Industry Association, the highly-anticipated event takes place on Placencia’s central sidewalk and kicks off in the morning!

Once the world’s narrowest street, the sidewalk teems with all sorts of original Belizean art, from vibrant paintings and hand-crafted jewelry to detailed wood carvings and perfectly-tailored clothing. Lose yourself to the music of Placencia’s local musicians while munching down on some delectable cuisine. Sway your hips to the beat as you stroll through the various booths and vendors, ranging from food tastings to chocolate-making demonstrations. Support the artisans by purchasing their exquisite pieces and donning them either around your neck or on a wall-hook in your home or office.

With a multitude of arts from all dimensions, the Sidewalk Festival not only celebrates local artists, but those who appreciate the arts as well. The 4000-foot long – yet only four-feet-wide – street will be pulsating with colorful life, and being held at one of the most picturesque places in Belize doesn’t hurt either.
